bain capital. for years romney has been saying he left bain in 1999 and that he couldn't be blamed for the thousands of workers laid off by bain in the years after that. his 2011 financial report says quote, he retired from bain capital on february 11th, 1999. quote, since february 11, 1999, romney has not had an active role with any bain capital entity and has not been involved in the operations of any bain capital entity in any way. romney signed this document personally. but today new information is emerging that tells a very different story. building on what we learned earlier this week, documents given to a massachusetts commission in 2002 show romney still had full ownership in at least six bain entities while he was in utah managing the olympics. and the commission found romney was still serving on the boards of companies that had bain ownership stakes in staples, marriott, and life like. all this paper work shows romney still owned bain three years after he says he retired from the company. now, his opponent in 2002's governor race shannen o'brien hammered him on exactly th

"the boston globe" reports that bain capital continued to list mitt romney as the firm's sole stockholder, chairman of the board, chief executive officer, and president for three years after mitt romney claims he left bain. the date romney left bain is the linchpin of his entire defense against the obama campaign's attacks on romney as a pioneer of outsourcing. >> i'm barack obama and i approve this message. >> president romney's first 100 days, creating thousands of new jobs. >> but would it? "the washington post" just revealed that romney's companies were pioneers of shipping u.s. jobs overseas. investing in firms that specialized in relocating jobs done by american workers to new facilities in low-wage countries like china and india. does virginia want an outsourcer in chief in the white house? >> mitt romney, who gleefully sends his money offshore to the kaman islands claims he would never send jobs offshore. had nothing to do with sending jobs offshore because he was no longer at bain when they became the pioneers o

>>> bain, bain, go away. let's play some "hardball." >>> good evening, i'm michael smerconish in philadelphia for chris matthews. leading off tonight, when you're explaining, you're losing. right now, mitt romney is explaining. did he really leave bain in 1999? why does his name appear on bain documents subsequent to that? and why does it matter? because accurate or not, the bain mess casts doubt on romney's principle argument that it's his business experience that most qualifies him to be president. the obama campaign has dented rom northeast' strength, karl rove couldn't have done a better job. perhaps it was because the romney camp was so eager to change that subject that they let slip to drudge that condoleeza rice emerged as a top vp pick. there are lots of reasons to believe this is nothing more than a shiny bright object to take our attention off of bain. but she would probably help romney plug a number of holes. plus, president obama says his biggest mistake is putting policy over storytelling. i talked about that two nights ago here. why doesn't the president do a bet
and over and over again today. he left bain capital in 1999 and left to run the olympics and anyone criticizing him for what bain did after that should apologize. he said specifically president obama should apologize because he, mitt romney was gone from bain in 1999. >> in february of 1999, i left bain capital. >> no involvement with the management of bain capital after february of 1999. >> i had no role whatsoever in the management of bain capital after february of 1999. i had had no role whatsoever in the management of bain capital after february of 1999. relinquished management authority and role in bain capital after february of 1999. the truth is i left any role in bain capital in february of 1999. >> part of me was bummed i didn't get one of these mitt romney interviews when everybody else got one. i realize all he would have said i left bain capital in 1999. and i would say pardon? and i would say could i change the subject and he would say, i left bain capital in 1999. here's what matters, when he was at bain capital and when he left, really left. it's critical to mitt romn
straight about bain capital and his tax returns and he failed. >> but i had no role whatsoever in the management of bain capital after february of 1999. in february of 1999, i left bain capital and left all management authority and responsibility for the firm. i had no role whatsoever in the management of bain capital after february of 1999. >> no role whatsoever. that's mitt romney repeatedly trying to get out from between a rock and a hard place. poor mitt. friday the 13th took on a new meaning for him. he took this unprecedented step today of actually doing five -- you heard me -- five network interviews. romney's been under pressure to explain the length and depth of his involvement at bain capital and affiliates, but we have documented evidence to require romney to do a whole lot more wiggling to get out of this tight spot. remember, the key question is whether mitt romney was active at bain capital after 1999. you heard him repeatedly say no evidence whatsoever! why is this so important? it's important because the obama campaign has launched very effective attacks on bain
like the ones for indiana, highlighting what mitt romney's bain capital did to the people who worked at the companies that romney and bain personally got rich off of. ted kennedy devastated mitt romney in 1994 in that senate race in those ads. so ted kennedy went back to the senate. mitt romney went back to bain. and he did a stint at the salt lake city olympics. when he decided he wanted to run again for public office, mr. romney man in 2002 for massachusetts governor. he ran against shannon o'brien. and shannon o'brien, no surprise, decided to run by upstating the same attacks that were so devastating against romney eight years earlier in the ted kennedy senate race. instead of the indiana paper mill that ted kennedy used in the ads against mr. romney in 1994, eight years later in 2002, shannon o'brien decided to use the gst steel mill experience against mr. romney. gfc still steel mill was a mill in operation since 1888 before bain got ahold of it. the end was the mill shut down. 750 jobs lost. their pension benefits were cut by hundreds of dollars a month. on the pension thing sp
with jennifer granholm. >> i'm jennifer granholm. tonight on "the war room," the bain of his existence. oh, what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive. this guy has been practicing for a long, long time! mitt romney comes under a bain barrage. new documents call into question exactly when he left the private equity firm. which calls into question his stance that he was not involved in outsourcing u.s. jobs overseas. which calls into question why anyone would believe a single word this guy says! mitt, mitt mitt! it is all starting to catch up with you. >> what a president believes matters. mitt romney's companies were pioneers in outsourcing u.s. jobs to low-wage countries. he supports tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas. president obama believes in insourcing. he fought to save the u.s. auto industry. and favors tax cuts for companies that bring jobs home. outsourcing versus insourcing. it matters. >> i'm barack obama and i approve this message. >> so as you can imagine
on his bain record from all corners of the globe. especially boston. beantown's paper calls romney's version of when he left bain capital untrue and they have the s.e.c. filings to prove it. so what's it going to be, mitt? did you flat out lie to the american public or did you lie to the s.e.c.? the latest chapter in mitt's secrets and lies starts now. >> jennifer: we have breaking news tonight that mitt romney's role at bain capital may have been more significant and lasted longer than he had originally claimed. we have uncovered documents that reveal that he was actively involved in bain capital businesses even though he claimed that he retired from the private equity company in 1999. current tv has learned that mitt romney was the 100% stakeholder in 11 bain capital entities later than 1999. he signed a document in 2003, right here, may 27th of 2003. this is his signature. this is a document that was filed at the massachusetts state ethics commission. a statement of financial interest for calendar year 2002 when he wa
today. he left bain capital in 1999. he left to run the olympics. and anybody kritdicizing him for what bain did after 1999 should apologize. mr. romney said specifically that president obama should apologize because he, mitt romney, was gone from bain by 1999. >> in february of 1999, i left bain capital. >> i had no involvement with the management of bain capital after february of 1999. >> i had no role whatsoever in the management of bain capital after february of 1999. >> i had no role whatsoever in the management of bain capital after february of 1999. >> i left in february of 1999. >> relinquished on management authority and role in bain capital after february of 1999. >> the truth is that i left any role at bain capital in february of '99. >> i will admit that pt of me was bummed that i didn't get one of these mitt romney interviews who everybody else got one. but on the other hand, i realize all he would have said to me is, i left bain capital in 1999. and i would have said, pardon? and he would have said, i left bain capital in 99. i would say, can i change the subject? he would
when he ran private equity firm bain capital. but with outsourcing jobs, a major issue in the race for the white house, the political cost of his success may be rising. from the start of his political career in 2002, romney's insisted and i quote "i left bain capital in 1999 and have had no authority or responsibility for managing that enterprise since then." but a story in "the boston globe" claims s.e.c. filings show that from 1999 to 2002, romney remained bain's and i quote "sole stockholder chairman of the board chief executive officer and president." bain investments in that three-year period included firms that shipped american jobs to companies overseas. and with today's story suggesting romney could have been involved, obama deputy campaign manager stephanie cutter made these damming comments to reporters. >> either mitt romney, through his own words and his own signature, was misrepresenting his position at bain to the s.e.c., which is a felony, or he was misrepresenting his position at bain to the
romney is the man we need in the white house thanks to his years of business experience at bain capital. so obama is now attacking romney's record. it's like he is hell-bent on making word bain synonymous with a source of harm or ruin. (applause) i'm mad, i'm mad. i am mad. obama in the last two weeks obama has spent a hundred million dollars in key battleground states running anti-romney ads like this. >> oh beautiful for spacious skies, for amber waves of gray. for purple mountain majesty, above the fruited plains. ♪ america ♪ america ♪ god shed his grace on thee ♪ ♪ and crown thy good ♪ rz now for the record mitt was originally on key. but he outsourced many of those notes to india. (applause) folks, obama is hammering mitt over a "washington post" article that claims the folks at bain were pioneers in the practice of shipping work from the united states. who cares. pioneers opened up the west. bain was just like the donor party. they ate the weak. (laughter) besides, romney wasn't even at bain during the outsourcing. >> hi no role whatsoever in the management of bain cap
campaign says mitt romney either misrepresented his time at bain or committed a felon. tonight i'll let you make the call. let's get to work. >> they say in politics if you're responding you're losing. >> a bombshell report claims mitt romney is misleading americans about his time at bain capital. bengi sarli is here today. the obama campaign says romney may have broken the law. and there are brand new allegations of outsourcing. sherrod brown, senator from ohio, tells the story. >> they're bringing people in that aren't active. >> the romney campaign denied flying in supporters to the naacp's convention to support mitt romney in his speech. >> eliminate every nonessential program i can find. that includes obama care.

>>> good friday, everyone. i'm craig melvin. the war of words on mitt romney's time at bain capital. is someone not telling the truth? both the obama and romney camps are coming out hard over the bain mess. yesterday's "boston globe" article claimed that romney was head of bain longer than he admitted. all these questions over romney and his team at bain are fair game. >> i think it's entirely appropriate to look at that record and see whether in fact his focus was creating jobs. and he successfully did that when you look at the record, there are questions there. >> again, there's this new romney ad out today bashing obama for what many say are scare tactics that features a clip from candidate obama speaking at the 2008 convention. >> if you don't have a record to run on, you paint your opponent as someone people should run from. >> joining me now from chicago, ben labolt, national press secretary for the obama campaign. are these scare tactics? >> mi >> -- the story in the "boston globe" yesterday suggested that he had been misleading the public since he was running for office in m

between team obama and team romney, concerning the former governor's position with bain capital. molly hennenberg has the latest. >> reporter: the former governor mitt romney said and has he left bain capital in early 1999 to head up the salt lake city olympics. bain foiled documents with the government lifting romney as ceo for three years after that. bain said it was a lag in updating the paperwork. the obama campaign is highlighting that discrepancy, suggesting that romney is being dishonest and may have committed a felony. romney did interviews yesterday with all of the broadcasting capable news channels to push back on that attack. he said the obama team is resorting to ridiculous claims about his time at bain that are, quote, beneath the presidency. to paycheck take the focus off of the economy. >> there are a lot of people really hurting. the presidency has been unsuccessful in getting people back to work and so they casting about at some way to make attacks to save the presidents' skin and our campaign. that is not going to work. >> the president spoke to supporters in virginia
was the top dog at bain capital three years after he said he left. according to the report, a massachusetts financial disclosure form romney filed in 2003 clearly stated he owned 100% of bain capital in 2002. and his state financial disclosures indicate he earned $100,000 as a bain executive in 2001 and 2002. the report also drops this bombshell, a romney campaign official who requested anonymity to discuss the sec filings acknowledged that they do not square with common sense. until now, romney has protected himself politically from any bain business practices after he left the company. romney always says that he left the company in 1999, except for this one time. >> i worked at one company, bain, for 25 years, and i left that to go off and help save the olympic games. >> okay. let's see if we can do a little bit of math here tonight on the ed show. mitt romney started in bain in 1977. 25 years later, well, that takes us to 2002. according to mitt romney and his camp, the candidate didn't make any decisions for bain after 1999. he only benefitted financially from them. well, his campaign s

's involvement at bain capital where he made his fortune. the focus centers around when he finally broke ties with that firm. the obama camp is claiming mr. romney lied about his end date at bain. even suggesting his actions could be criminal. to counter attack, mr. romney went on a media blitz today. something he rarely does. he talked with cnn's national political correspondent jim acosta this evening. >> governor, thanks for joining us. let's talk first about this controversy over when you left bain capital. i'll put one of the documents in question up on screen. their sec filing stating that you were ceo at bain capital past 1999. when you say you left bain to run the olympics. why was your name still on these documents? and why didn't you clear this up sooner? >> well, i was the owner of an entity that is filing that information. but i had no role whatsoever in the management of bain capital after february of 1999. not that that would have been a problem to have said i was with the firm beyond that but i simply wasn't. i went out and did that full time. relinquished all management author
reports suggest he has been less than truthful about when he left bain capital. he has claimed he broke from bain in february 1999 to defend himself from charges he laid off workers and outsourced jobs overseas, but new reports are making waves on a "boston globe" piece today, finding that romney was listed as bain's sole stockholder, chairman of the board, ceo and president. on sec filings into 2002. the romney campaign has responded in a statement, quote, the article is not accurate. as bain has said, as governor romney has said and had been confirmed by independent fact checkers multiple time, bain left in february of 1999 to run the limb p picks and had input on magt of companies after that point. but hang on. what was it romney said yesterday about responding in politics? >> i respond to the attacks that come, they say in politics, if you're responding, you're losing. >> let's get right to our panel including the man who had the early jump on the story, david corn with us from washington, d.c. and also joining us here in new york, charles blow. david, you've been one of the first t

than president obama. but those bain ads have been hitting him hard. the he's called the president a liar, this has gotten to be a real mud fight. but this is a problem for mitt romney, the other problem is, that some of the cushion i think president obama has so far is that people really like him. i think that is some of the cushion that you're seeing in some of those ads which is a real problem for mitt romney. >> and if the polls show that the romney campaign needs a boost, maybe they can get it when they name is vp, the drudge report said that condoleezza rice is at the top of the vp short list. >> good morning. >> let me go back a little bit. here's what condi had to say to david gregory back in march. >> it's not for me. i love policy, i love public service, i'm awfully happy doing what i'm doing. >> she's been a public servant, if the call came would she say no? is there credibility in this report. >> when she gave a speech to some of romney's top donors a couple of weeks ago in utah. it was a very political speech, it was a speech filled with red meat rhetorics, filled with
